When train journeys are shown in movies or on TV, it's always the glamorous long distance stuff, with fancy dining cars and private cabins and so on.

I want to see a suave adventurer do a 70-minute commute standing shoulder-to-shoulder on a crowded urban train, while people next to him are yelling into their phones or flipping newspapers in his face. In summer. With the train air conditioning broken.
